Upadate November 2015: There was a long post here at one point about how I'd tried in the past to write a book, and that it hadn't worked out, BUT that I was trying again.
Well, it didn't work out this time, either, so...no more post here, I've deleted it.
Perhaps the future will bring a book, perhaps not. In the meanwhile, I feel a lot lighter without this hanging over my head...
So sorry to those who were excited, and offered to chip in, I appreciate your offers, but this is going to have to be something which happens in some other way.
My very best thanks to you all, again
